Parlor Room 88 35th Street 3rd Floor
As a teenager I took art classes after school. I did not create any art until 1994 when I moved from Brooklyn to Maplewood New Jersey. Moving to the suburbs was calm and I had a backyard and space to explore my creative side. First it was painting old window and gluing mirrors into the panes and selling them on Columbus Avenue at craft fairs. Somehow that led to my trekking around the country and incorporating stained glass into my windows – this led to my breaking the stained glass scraps and creating mosaics around mirrors which I sold starting in 1998. I had a great run doing top art shows through mid-2006 when the economy tanked. Last March, while in Florida I went to Pearl paint and started puttering with acrylic paints and embedding reflective glass in paint with resin. Throughout my journey the work has maintained a sense of scale, proportion and color balance. I have had the chance to work on several large commissions that forced me out of my safe zone.
My work stems from my environment, experiences, and emotional state. I do a lot of observational drawing. Through this drawing process I extract forms that become sculpture.
The Artist Salon series is a program organized by NARS artists for their fellow studio and residency artists. The Artist Salon Committee coordinates artist talks, presentations, studio visits, and various other activities to encourage insightful dialogue among its participants. Continuously building dynamic conversations around topics related to the current times and our environment, the Artist Salon is an open forum for testing out new ideas, examining paradigm shifts in the art world, and furthering the creative development of the NARS artist community. This is a self-directed program that shifts and morphs according to the needs of the community.
NARS entrance on 35th Street will remain open until 7:15. Doorways between studio floors will remain open through duration of the session for easy access by artists. Refreshments will be served.
